Purchased From : Kensington Ag, PEI, Canada
Strengths Well designed structurally but not to the level the B21 was. The backhoe is light years ahead of my last (B21). lighting is excellent and ergonomics are first rate. powerful and economical engine. better hp to the Pto is great for snow blowing. Great local dealer.
Weaknesses Blew a Hydraulic line very early on. The body work is much lighter than the B21 (watch the hood!). The ignition switch freezes every time the temp drops below freezing and bends the keys. Great spot for the switch for ergonomics but not for weather. Almost every safety decal fell off the plastic parts of the tractor. safety switch incorrectly installed at factory broke and stopped unit from running. Dealer handled quickly.
Overall Great improvement over the B21 in so many ways, but the bean counters helped design this one so don't treat it like a B21! However it does everything I ask of it, so whats not to like. Expensive but worth it!
